SpaceX Launch of GPS III-3 Satellite

Launch time has been pushed back to the end of today's window at 4:10 pm eastern, 30 minutes from now. A Falcon 9 will attempt to launch a GPS satellite and then the first stage will land on the drone ship. Weather has a 60% chance of acceptable conditions.

Re: SpaceX Launch of GPS III-3 Satellite
SpaceX has been AWFUL busy the last months. Very interesting.

But did you hear this news?

"OneWeb Files for Chapter 11 – after launching 74 LEO satellites, has gone bankrupt… So now, what happens to those satellites drifting in orbit, above earth?" See: [link to daviddilling.com]

Wo what happens to the 74 LEO\s they have up there, above us?

Yup, I heard. The UK reportedly made a bid to have their satellites used as navigation satellites.
[link to advanced-television.com (secure)]
I don't think it's about using the satellites they already launched so much as it is about modifying the ones that were already being constructed and hadn't been launched yet in order to serve a new purpose. I don't think they're going to get very far with that, but props to them for creative thinking. Others are reportedly bidding for the assets too, including the Chinese.

This is a GPS satellite launch, so taxpayers pay for it. And thanks to SpaceX and rocket reuse, the Space Force is paying less for it than they would with an older launch provider. You're welcome. If you don't like GPS then I hope you're not a hypocrite and you never use it on your phone, take a plane flight, or even take an Uber trip. The rest of us will enjoy the latest generation of GPS technology without you.

Yes, night shuttle launches were very dramatic. Have seen them night sailing off Palm Beach and staging from the Bahamas.

Neat polar launch in 1993 up US east coast at 0100.

Have they ever had a landing on the barge without the camera cutting off at touchdown? Seems like it happens every-time.

Sadly, the truth doesn't matter to the low IQ tards, and they will actively ignore examples where they had uninterrupted footage of the landing. They'll also ignore the fact you can see LZ-1 landings in person.
